Kristian Woolf hails his St Helens side’s ‘character’ following big win over Hull FC but faces potential blows

St Helens were able to beat Hull FC tonight, 24-10 at the Totally Wicked Stadium.

Hull kept the Saints to just ten points in the first-half, but the reigning champions kept their foot on the gas to register a big win just a week after crashing out of the Challenge Cup semi-finals.

And, head coach Kristian Woolf hailed his side for the way that they responded following that disappointing defeat at Elland Road.

“I thought they responded great and I thought we played outstanding, but it was a really good game of footy,” Woolf said on Sky Sports following the game.

“Hull came to play and we had to be good to get over them – I think we had to show our character.

“Quite a lot of things are easy to respond to when you’re winning, but last week was a big loss in a big game for the first time in a while.

Woolf was keen to emphasise that he still had a number of players to come back.

“We’ve still got a few blokes back in that will help and we had a few blokes out of position so we’ve got a fair bit of improvement in us.”

Morgan Knowles (head) and James Roby (finger) appeared to be hurt later on with Knowles unable to do his screen-pitch analysis with Sky Sports pundit Jon Wells after the game.
